Good sushi and good price. But waiter did not live up: food list and drink are ordered direct to the cooker at the sushi bar.

I often travel for my job and have had sushi all over the U.S. I can say that Wasabi Blvd (formerly Uraku) has sushi that rivals the very best restaurants in the country! Very happy to have this wonderful establishment in my hometown!

Fresh food, attentive service and warm hospitality greet you in the quaint diner in a strip mall across from the BGSU football stadium. The areas most delicious pad Thai and an assortment of fresh made sushi makes this a must "find-and-visit" when visiting the campus.

Food has attention to detail. I don't eat sushi but I've heard this is some of the best, made any way you like it. I normally order a beef dish and have never been disappointed with food quality. Very tasty and served hot and fresh. Not a fast experience so a great place for a relaxed dinner with friends.

We have visited this establishment many times. While it is advertised as a Japanese restaurant, the Korean food is what we would recommend. The Japanese and Thai dishes are average at best but the Korean dishes are some of the best in northwest Ohio (ok, NW ohio is not known for great Korean food but having moving here from an... More

This restaurant came recommended to us, and it was definitely a winner. The fish on our sushi was very fresh. The sushi was tasty and attractive looking made by Dai, the owner. Sushi for two of us was $35. I highly recommend Uraku. We plan on going back for Thai soon.

We have visited this restaurant about once every two weeks for several months. Obviously we and friends find it most satisfying. I am bewildered by the negative reviews about the service and the owner. It is as if we were all dining at different restaurants. The prices are lower than found in similar Toledo restaurants; the owner is cordial and... More

The food is extremely overpriced, not very tasty, and the owner is truly awful. I have tried to eat here twice, once with friends and once alone. I came alone on a Saturday for lunch and was charged $16 for a fried rice dish?! Not to mention being able to hear the owner/chef in the kitchen berating the waitstaff for... More
